MIT's computer-science program has once again been ranked #1 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report in its annual rankings of the United States’ best colleges and universities, which were released today.

For the 25th straight year, the Institute also maintained its standing as the nation’s top undergraduate engineering program at a doctoral institution.

Among individual factors contributing to overall institutional standings, U.S. News ranked MIT first in selectivity, a criterion encompassing undergraduate acceptance rate, number of incoming students in the top decile of their high school class, and standardized test scores; the Institute tied at No. 1 with Caltech on these metrics.
